About me . . .
Born to amazingly
artistic parents who provided an atmosphere of Bricolage
(a French word meaning . . . to take the ordinary, every-day items at hand and transform them into the extra-ordinary), I never considered myself an artist as drawing was not one of my 'Gifts'. . . and actually I never had the desire to develop that skill.
However, those years of growing up in an environment of moment-to-moment creativity serves as a wellspring from which my 'living creatively' continues to flow.
For me, creativity
is not just 'doing art' . . . it relates to all aspects of our lives . . . such
as ease of thinking, intuition, seeing new perspectives, self-expression, problem
solving, idea-sequencing . . . and if you let it
. . . just plain fun!
myself more a 'creative' than artist or 'designer',
wherever I have lived
throughout these United States, I have transformed my living space into
a creative space. That way, no room is 'labeled' for only
one type of activity.
Until a few years ago when I carved out sufficient space for a 'workshop' area to be a part of my home . . .
I would set up my supplies in the kitchen and work late into the night . . . perhaps from early training in our family of sitting at the kitchen table and doing all kinds of projects together . . . like family Christmas cards!
My home decorating, design, artwork and now my sewing are most closely related to 'The Art of Synesthesia' . . . when a colour/symbol/design/sound evokes an ancient memory or distant dream or other type of sensory experience.
My home is a Sanctuary of Silence and Sound, Colour and Space . . . a way of life that suits me well.
We are now walking
in the footprints
of our Soul . . .
The echo of the Ancient Future
ringing in our heart,
guiding us onward!

If you will
be visiting the area
of far-northern California - southern Oregon
which we call 'The State of Jefferson',
then you will be 'in the area'
and might want to consider
a visit to Etna, USA . . .
"Come to my quietness.
I shall cover you with it,
like a white sheet that has blown all day in
like a mountain lake filled with spring,
it shall slip over you . . ."

One does not need a studio
to be an 'artist'
or a 'designer'
or a 'creative' . . .
One needs only . . .
Then . . . LIFE will live through you . . .
